5 THINGS YOU NEED TO TAKE TO A GIG

There are several “non music related” stuff that every musician should carry when gigging. Here a few:

01

DUCT TAPE

For fixing on the go when there are not replacements near. It can help sticking a sign to a wall, holding a light stand to the floor when to unstable or windy or cover a hole in a bag! Always handy.

02

WD40

Yes. To lubricate stuck parts of musical gear. I live in the tropics and near the beach. Humidity causes oxidation in all metal parts, mic stands, light stands, guitar parts, you name it. A little of WD40 can help a lot to keep moisture out of the gear. And also will loose any stuck screw or knob! Ask your drummer and he´ll tell you.

03

Basic Tools

A couple of screwdrivers, wire cutter, knife and pliers are needed very often. To save some space and weight, invest in those multi purpose tools that come in a blade style shape with scissors, saw and more.

04

Extra Cables

You don´t know when one of yours will stop working. XLRs, 1/4s and power extensions.

05

Hand Towels

And rags to wipe your face and clean the gear. Gear gets dusty and your face sweaty when setting up and when singing and performing. Dry your face!
